    How good is Lewis Hamilton?

    And how bad is Nico?

    Anyway. Lewis is one race away from matching Senna. In wins. In the same number of starts.
    Amazing considering he went through three + years of Redbull dominance.

    And Nico is blowing up engines trying to keep up. That little ****** is way off pace. Doesn't belong in F1. He's more like a gentlemen racer. Not a pro.
    Perez , verstapen, bottas, massa, hulkenberg, all drivers that could outpace rossberg in that seat. I'm sure there's more. But he's clearly not up to the task of competing with Hamilton.

    I didn't watch the race today. However, I got it on my dvr

    I'll check out the race once my wife goes to bed. I did notice on my F1 app that Hamilton won & I saw Nico got a DNF.

    First chicane has nicos number. No doubt he's over revving on down shifts into HEAVY breaking zones.
    Blew out the reliable 15 engine and a new 16 motor almost instantly. Meanwhile, Lewis is cruising while providing valuable data to the team on 2016 engine. Nico's way over his head.

    Hamilton is as good as his car.
    I dont consider him a special or outstanding driver, only lucky to be in such a good car.
    Hülkenberg, Alonso and Vettel are a lot better in my opinion.

    Watch you language please.

    On my opinion of it, i do believe he is a very good driver, one of the quick ones up with the greats of the sport. Of course part of his dominance this year and last has been the car....but he has always (apart from 1 season with Button i believe), outperformed his teammate in equivalent cars.

    Nico is by no means slow, but he doesn't have an answer for Lewis when Lewis is in a good mood (emotional guy i know), he's pretty much unbeatable. I just remember back to his McLaren days where a lot of his overtaking moves were sublime, and his race craft is very good indeed. He just hasn't had that much opportunity to show it recently when his car is always at the front.

    I saw Nico engine blew with a couple laps left. Wow. It was smoking hot, pun intended

    But you can't prove it. At the end of the day, because of the politics. All we have is the numbers.
    Gotta do what you can when you can. He's done it the best so far. And he's been held back cause most don't like his attitude. Including me.

    Yes switch the cars up and it plays out different. But who's to say what would happen. His numbers remain fact.
    His stolen victories remain fact. Nico destroyed remains fact.

    Yeah. My names not hkraft. And I'm not meaning to get my own thread closed. Not directed at anyone.
    Is this policy new? Or newly enforced. Should I pay more attention around here?
    Was it the s word? Or did I say tw.... I believe that's what hkraft referred to .......

    Edit: I believe the offending word to be wan___
    Really? Is that a seriously offensive word. Not my side of pond. But does it mean something else like a human appendage or something? Chose that word as it seemed pretty tame. But I'm American. Not British.

    If l go by your rules, yes l can prove that Sebastian is better. 4 titles. Numbers.

    Lewis has just become such an unlikeable person. But as soon as TV cameras are there he puts on his facade, dropping those generic racedriver statements. I really liked him when he was at McLaren, Ron Dennis kept him on the ground. Now he's above us all, including his fans

    Btw, the 90's called, they want their hair color back.

    Haha. Hamilton soon to have three. 4 the year following if Mercedes don't sack Nico.

    But cherry picking the one number devalues the greater whole that Hamilton has amassed. Your certainly not arguing vettels better than raikonen are you? Other than maybe qualifying.

    Because.......wait for it
